For 565 Broome SoHo, Bizzi & Partners Development turned to two leaders in architecture, tapping Renzo Piano Building Workshop to come up with the project’s form and façades and RDAI to design the interiors. “It’s a great collaboration, which makes it easy to work together,” says RPBW principal Renzo Piano.
Both firms have developed an approach that creates luxurious spaces by emphasizing design quality and material craft. “We use materials in a very honest way,” explains Piano. “The character of the spaces is very rich.”
Rather than applying the prototypical finishes to create the semblance of luxury, the architects find beauty in real materials: stone, white oak wood, glass, and concrete.
RPBW has long distinguished itself as a studio of craftspeople, taking great care about how building elements are made and put together. By keeping the material palette austere, the designers accentuate the quality of those materials. Like the historic cast iron architecture that has long defined SoHo, the condominium residences for sale at 565 Broome SoHo will be distinguished by the expression of key materials.
